Welcome to the world of Plink
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Say hello to a world of plinks! Plink 2 builds on the success of the original Plink Kontakt instrument by adding a far better user interface, some additional sample sets and a dedicated FX section with bespoke convolution reverbs, delay and a multimode filter to sculpt the perfect plink.
Plink 2 provides a beautiful collection of plinky sounds. To create this instrument I sampled a wide variety of sources, including old and new synths, vintage guitars, a ukulele, a banjolele, a music box, toy instruments, a beaten-up piano plus ‘found’ sounds like kitchen glasses and a bicycle wheel.
As well as a re-designed GUI, created by Paul Lebküchner of Sound Aesthetics Sampling, the sample sets have been tweaked, start points adjusted and some of the more wayward samples tuned to produce a more polished sounding instrument.
With the new GUI, polished samples and funky FX, new life has been breathed into the original plinky sample set. This makes Plink 2 a better sounding, and far more versatile and fun instrument to play and explore.
Please note that the full version of Kontakt 5.8.0 or higher is required — This instrument will only run in demo mode in the free Kontakt Player.
Quirky but fun. Great sounds that work in everything from underscoring to electronica. Love the "?" button for a great random patch creator. Have come up with some unique sounds to work with some of my projects!
I love the sound of Plink 2, many of the acoustic sample instruments are hard to produce, but it is worth the effort as you hear clearly in this library. The approach of Old Timer production company and the sound of this library reminds me of Sound Dust. I look forward to Old Timer next releases covering similar great sounding virtual instrument. If the quality and tone continues on this level, we can look forward to some impressive and unique sound adventures.
